Details

The Transferrin Test is ordered to assess the body's ability to bind and transport iron in the blood. It is often ordered along with other iron-related tests when iron deficiency or overload are suspected, or to assess nutrition or liver function.

The Transferrin Test is also known as Siderophilin. No fasting is required for this blood test, and results will be available within 1-2 days.

The body absorbs iron from the food you eat, and transferrin transports it throughout the body. Transferrin is produced in the liver, so the amount of transferrin present in the blood can be an indicator of liver function, as well as your nutrition—low levels can indicate a lack of protein and/or too much iron in your diet. Individuals with liver disease, kidney disease, cancer, chronic inflammation or hereditary transferrin deficiency may also have low levels of transferrin. Women who are pregnant or taking birth control pills may have high levels of transferrin. High levels can also indicate iron deficiency. In addition to a Transferrin Test, an iron serum test, iron and TIBC blood test, and/or ferritin serum test may be ordered to assess and diagnose iron-related conditions.
